we had booked a 7 days stay at the Crowne Plaza in Muscate for our 20 years anniversary with my wife and 4 kids. We were about to board the Emirates flight in Paris when an Emirates attendant noticed the passport of one of my kid was short of 3 weeks (valid until mid-May).
He refused us to board the plane. Of course the flight was overbooked and another family replaced us. We travelled Qatar Airlines a few days later as Emirates did not find an alternative flight. They only told us to come at the airport and register on the overbooking list.
At the Omani boarder the officer did not comment on the passport.
Emirates barely refund 40% of the tickets.
